Significance of plants in Vaastu – Explained.

Did you know you could be lucky if you get a small garden in your house?

And when I say “small garden,” I appreciate that most of us now live in multi-storeyed buildings in densely populated urban cities.

Even a tiny balcony, window sill, or corner in your living room can be transformed into a patch of green. Apart from the aesthetic value that it adds to your living space, it is also significant in improving the Vastu of your house.

Vaastu Shastra emphasizes the role of plants and the positive impact they can have on our lives.

However, not all plants are beneficial, and there are clear guidelines in Vastu Shastra about how and where to place specific plants and their effects on health, fortune, and prosperity.

The fundamental principle of Vastu is based on bringing about a harmonious coexistence of all five elements in a given space.

Here are a few guidelines that can help you understand the impact of certain plants in your home garden:

Recommended plants according to Vaastu Shastra

  • Aloe Vera – Absorbs large quantities of carbon dioxide and releases oxygen. Low maintenance ensures a consistent flow of positive energy in the house, not to forget the medicinal properties this plant has for skin care and hair-related problems.
  • Holy Basil (Tulsi) – This medicinal herb has numerous uses, from its leaves to cure sniffles and major diseases. Vaastu Shastra considers this plant a gift from the gods and is, therefore, sacred. Accompanied during various ceremonies, this plant is an air purifier, generates oxygen, and is a natural tonic for relieving toxins from the body.
  • Dracaena (Lucky Bamboo) – A symbol of harmonious existence of peace and prosperity, the Lucky Bamboo is kept indoors for luck. The number of stocks denotes certain beliefs; for instance, six shoots of bamboo denote luck, seven denotes good health, etc. As per Vaastu, this plant brings the ambiance of happiness and joy to a living space.
  • Money Plant – Being a representation of wealth, as the name suggests, Vaastu Shastra likens this plant to a good companion. Meant to bring in a consistent flow of prosperity, this plant is one of the aesthetic plants that your home might want.
  • Peace lily – A symbol of harmony, the Peace Lily is pleasing to the eyes and sets an ambiance of tranquil beauty. According to Vastu, this plant keeps away negative energy and ushers in the possibility of positivity.
  • Jasmine – A good flowering plant, the jasmine is undoubtedly the most pleasing plant. A fragrance that mesmerizes, jasmine is said to be a mood enhancer, reduces anxiety, and promotes peace and a tranquil environment.

These are some of the indoor plants that you can plant while living in a city.
